Iowa Corn Farmers Featured in New Multimedia Campaign and ‘Fill Up on Me’ Sweepstakes
JOHNSTON, Iowa --
Four Iowa farmers are featured in a new multimedia, statewide, campaign by the Iowa Corn Growers Association and the Iowa Corn Promotion Board. Television advertisements focus on ethanol/economic development, products from corn to ethanol process and conservation practices on farm. The campaign will also include online, print, and radio messages.
“We are proud of the outstanding farmers we have in Iowa,” said Shannon Textor, Market Development Director for Iowa Corn and the staff person responsible for ethanol marketing. “We picked just four Iowans for the campaign, but we have thousands more great Iowa farmers that we could have chosen to feature.”
The campaign starts November 15 and runs through December 14 with possible expansion to other topics. The farmers featured in the ads range in age, experience, and have different farming operations. They are united, however, on their passion for agriculture in general.
The following farmers were featured and more information can be found at www.iowacorn.org:
“We can’t forget to mention the campaign includes a fuel giveaway,” said Textor. “Our hope is that they will see ways to get involved on the ethanol issue while signing up for ethanol produced by the farmers in this campaign.”
More campaign details along with the ads and information on the Fill Up on Us campaign can be found at www.iowacorn.org/fillup.
The Iowa Corn Promotion Board (ICPB), works to develop and defend markets, fund research, and provide education about corn and corn products. The Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) is a membership organization lobbying on agricultural issues on behalf of its 7,500 farmer members. Both organizations work on the joint mission to create opportunities for long-term Iowa corn grower profitability.
